Make time to walk this bridge and view it from the side. It is not high elevation, but interesting construction and nearby old structures are photographic. It's also lovely at night.

The view from there over the river and the city around is amazing! It ois worth it to go there for the sunrise, the sundown, and at night!

We cross this bridge about eight times a day, as our b&b is quite near. It is an ancient bridge with a timeless elegance & simple beauty, a perfect structure for its purpose. I want to take it home.

Verona is a city filled with history, with some of the best preserved Roman structures in Italy. This bridge is amongst them, and rightly deserves its heritage status. Now predominantly a pedestrian bridge, it is also a great place to stand and watch the world pass by, and the river rush below your feet..

Lovely view of the city. Fantastic restaurant just close by overlooking the Adige River. Great crossing to hike up the hill to Castello San Pietro near the Roman Amphitheatre (for the view)

Its an ancient bridge , strictly pedonale these days bustling with tourists vying for the best spot to get that magic view. The river rushes under it , its a perfect place to appreciate the scene nearby , the Roman ruins , the church on the hill , the many churches surrounding the bridge . Its one of the worlds... More

Lots of great picture taking opportunities. The ancient bridge, fortunately without traffic, the roaring river, the castle on the hill, the colourful buildings along the river banks. Hard to take a bad picture and lots of background for a "Selfie"!

I decided to include Verona in my itinerary & make it my base , instead of Venice, after reading reviews of the place & it was an excellent decision! Verona is very charming and the part of town around the ponte pietra, teatro Romano is dreamy and beautiful. Of course ,the ponte pietra on the river Adige is a bridge... More

Just the walk from one side to the other is wonderful, the sound of the river flowing underneath the bridge adds to the experience.
